Just curious ladies. I have never had issues with depression, but wondering...

What does pp depression include? Just baby stuff? Or can weight issue/self esteem be an issue?

I don't know if I am battling it or not. I have had self esteem issues before I had kids. It stems back to when I was in my passed relationship, I was young and in a 12 year relationship with the wrong guy. One who told me I was ugly and fat all the time.

So I got out of that relationship and remarried/had 2 beautiful girls...and here I am.
6 weeks post partum and feeling pretty low about myself. I feel fat/ugly and unwanted. I know it's hard having 2 kids and having a love life with hubby. I am 140 lbs (12 lbs to lose before I will be back to my pre pregnancy weight) I go shopping and almost cry every time. I look gross. Everyone I seem to hang out with is tiny and perfect.

Sorry..... I know I "just had a baby" and such, and had my 2nd c section, but still.

I am going to try to start doing p90x monday.

Thank you Vicki.... for my beautiful siggie!!!

I don't know the answer either, but I just think you're so pretty that it's kinda silly to worry about your weight!!!

Hopefully the new workout will help make YOU feel better about YOU <3

I struggle really bad with weight issues recently. I try and stay motivated with working out and eating good but when I don't seem to loose right away I just want to cry (which of course I won't loose immediately). I don't ever feel s*xy around DH anymore. It doesn't help that I once NEVER had an issue with weight and people would ask if I had eating disorder I was so skinny. Now, I'm 170 and FAR from loosing all my weight and I'm 19 months PP - you and doing so much better than me!! And, you are doing a great job starting a new workout - I'm proud of you for wanting to try! Stay motivated and know that you are beautiful!!! And, if the issue doesn't seem to go away possibly try talking to your doctor. I talked a little about it to my OB at my recent yearly apt and she made me feel a lot better about myself!

Hi Tiffany. It sounds like ppd to me. I'm going through the same feelings. I feel fat, unattractive, not sexy at all. I'm jogging several times a week and the weight isn't coming off as fast as I think it should. I have two things I do. First, I always make sure I shower every day and put on something cute. The first month after Evan was born I was "frump girl" and I won't let myself do that anymore. I feel better when im wearing something pretty. It doesmt have to be expensive or new, i just make sure my clothes look nice. The 2nd thing I do is "fake it till you make it". On the days I'm feeling depressed & insecure I pretend I'm fine until it passes. I think a positive attitude makes a person sexier so I just try to put on the air, if that makes sense. And just so you know, I have always thought you were gorgeous. You have a million dollar smile and I'm not just saying that.
